A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

A Message From Alyss
So, we fell just a few hundred short of our goal, but that's okay, because it's a "Flexible Goal" meaning we still get the funds raised (minus Indiegogo's cut) so we can and will fulfill the promised perks.
We are grateful to all who contributed, and yes you are all now founding members of the "Free Cosmos Project," with all the privileges membership entitles you thereto. (Unless you don't want the honor, we'll respect that too.) Which for now means we'll be whipping up a spiffy little Certificate for each of you, physical versions sent out with the physical books requested, and PDF versions for the rest.
Indiegogo will disburse the funds to us soon. And we've already got the ball rolling printing books, and postcards, as well as the above-mentioned FCP certificates. And we'll be talking a bit more about the Free Cosmos Project in the coming weeks.
In biology class. The students are seated at tables. There's a row of counters along a far wall containing various types of gear. An android instructor (Ms. Tibia) is lecturing. Zander and Bok are in the back row.
Caption: Biology class:
Zander (whispers to Bok): Can you distract Ms. Tibia while I use the magnifier?
Bok (whispers back): Sure thing.
Looking past the backs of some students' heads at Ms. Tibia, who is lecturing.
Tibia: … and so we see the advantage of a planned ecology, as we have on Zytemode, as opposed to the chaotic system on Old Terra.
Tibia: Every function is fulfilled by organisms scientifically designed for their purpose.
Tibia: This makes for much simpler management. No struggle, no extinctions, no ...
Looking past Ms. Tibia, to where Bok has his hand raised.
Tibia: … yes, Mr. Clark?
Bok: Also no variety, no excitement, no fun?
Bok: Is 'simpler management' really worth living on a boring world?
